We stayed at Oakley Hall last night with friends and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel is a lovely 18th century house in beautiful grounds. We were in the courtyard bedrooms where you can park right outside your room which makes a great change from having to carry luggage around. The rooms have been decorated to a very high standard and just to my taste, I especially loved the adjustable reading lights. Our stay started with a lovely afternoon tea in the library and we all very much enjoyed the excellent, beautifully presented dinner. Breakfast was also very good with a large choice. Everything about the stay was excellent and the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to keep everyone happy. I can't praise this hotel enough, they really have thought of everything - even a printed weather forecast in the evening to enable you to plan the next day. Complimentary fruit, water and shortbreads added to the enjoyment. We can't wait to go back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1795, Oakley Hall has a distinguished and fascinating past. The author Jane Austen was a friend of the Bramston family – the then owners – she was a frequent visitor to Oakley Hall and it is mentioned fondly in Austen’s letters to her sister Cassandra. A later owner, William Beach, added a second storey to the house, so creating the grand and impressive building that 21st century visitors can still enjoy. He also employed landscape gardener and architect Edward Milner to design Oakley Hall’s gardens. In 2014, a major restoration project saw Oakley Hall Hotel returned to its full glory, ensuring that visitors will continue to fall in love with Oakley Hall’s Georgian splendour and charm for many years to come. With 50 beautiful bedrooms, suites and even a delightful Garden Cottage from which to choose, guests can indulge in a luxurious stay, enjoy a relaxing drink in the 1795 Bar & Lounge and a fine dining experience in the award-winning 2 AA Rosette Glasshouse Restaurant. Outside there are acres and acres of stunning grounds to explore. From a gentle walk to an early morning run or an afternoon of clay pigeon shooting, there are plenty of things to do. ... more less
